What is Farting All About?

There are gasses too that are made in the process of breaking down food in the large intestine. Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Methane, all of these gasses has to escape in the form of fart!
So, what makes it smell so bad? Well, sulfur and ammonia found in the large intestine were mixed with the gasses as they passed, thus giving it a foul smell. Another word for a fart is flatulence.
